Property description

Suitable for groups, friends, two smaller families or larger/extended families - this historic former bank manager’s residence is recently refurbished to conservation standards. We offer a substantial, stone-built, timber-beamed Grade 2 listed house dating back to 1782 (and possibly older) - featuring 3 generous bedrooms and an off-street parking space.
The house incorporates a spectacular oak-finished attic master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe. Other beautiful features include a historic wood-panelled lounge with shuttered sash windows and grand piano. Keen cooks will enjoy the newly fitted oak kitchen incorporating a Smeg 6 ring dual-oven range cooker and eating area. The downstairs area is completed by a utility area and wet-room shower / WC.

The upstairs has been fully redecorated incorporating with period themes and furnishings and includes solid oak timbers, some original historic panelling, traditional lime plaster ceilings and mouldings.
A private garden is mainly grass with a patio seating/eating area.

Amongst our period furnishings is a John Broadwood and Sons Grand Piano which you are welcome to play. More modern entertainment includes 2 TVs with DVD players and a DAB Radio/CD player.

We also organise monthly weekends for those wishing to improve their English conversation and enjoy the Cotswolds. These are arranged in conjunction with ES4J (English School for Japanese).

For those who are unfamiliar with Wotton-Under-Edge, it is a charming historic wool town on the western edge of the Cotswolds within walking distance of magnificent views over the Severn Valley to the Forest of Dean and Malvern Hills. Walkers will enjoy access to the Cotswolds Way with fantastic views from the Edge and many pleasant nearby locations. As a small town, it is unusually well provided for with 2 supermarkets and local shoping (including delis, bakeries, take-aways...) . Aside from the charms of the Cotswolds, it is within easy reach of Bath, Bristol, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester. More locally, Westonbirt Arboretum and Berkeley provide a pleasant day out and nearby towns and villages of Tetbury, Stroud, Nailsworth and Painswick are well worth a visit.

We are also well placed for those who wish to attend:

Badminton Horse Trials

Gatcombe Eventing

Cheltenham Gold Cup Racing
